Mrs. Fitch's Counseling Corner

Hello parents and students! I am so excited to kick off our 2022-2023 school year! This is my 14th year in school counseling and 4th year at Gold Rush. I love working with our amazing GRE students and community. As we embark upon this new adventure in education my role continues to be supporting our students academic, social and emotional health.


This year we will focus on kindness, conflict resolution and managing our emotions. I will be using areas of the MindUp curriculum for our 2nd-5th graders in class. Based firmly in neuroscience, MindUp teaches the skills and knowledge children need to regulate their stress and emotion, form positive relationships, and act with kindness and compassion. Our 1st graders will be doing Social Emotional Lessons that connect with the Little Spot series by Diane Alber and our Kindergartners will be learning the ABCs of breathing with the book Alphabreaths by Christopher Willard PsyD.

I also offer student support individually and in group settings. Reach out if you feel like your student is in need of supports to help them be the best learners they can be!

I can't wait to see everyone this year!
